The end of an era...

Dan's last day with RDS was yesterday (RDS is closing their OKC office).  He is officially unemployed!  Well, at least until Monday :)  He starts his new job with Oklahoma Tank Line on Monday.  Dan worked with RDS for 21 years and it was hard for everyone to say good-bye yesterday after so many years.  We are excited for the new things to come and for Dan to get opportunities to put his Master's Degree to work.  Dan will be the CSC Manager at OTL...

However, before Dan starts on Monday, we have to so something that Dan HATES to do...go shopping!  Dan has plenty of Suits that he wears on Sundays and plenty of jeans as that is what he wore at RDS.  However,  His new job requires business casual so we must hit the stores this afternoon!  So much for football :)  Sorry

PS... Dan's cell  number will be changing.  It was a RDS work cell.  We will get his new number out as soon as we get it.  Hopefully today!

Christmas 2010

We had such a fabulous Christmas!!  Ash flew in from Idaho on the 19th and flies out today (the 31st).  Dan and I both had Christmas eve off so the evening of the 23rd we drove down to my twin's family and stayed a couple of days with them.  It was a wonderful time and we had a blast!!  We even made time for visiting friends and relatives on Friday.   Then we went to my mom's on Christmas Day and had a WONDERFUL time visiting with family and playing Catch Phrase (this is a game that can be played with the kids).  It was soooo fun!   I am missing my family and Dan's family and am ready to go see them again!!  It is a good thing they are only an hour and a half away.

I am not quite ready for Ash to leave, but know that College awaits her!  She is in her second semester of her Sophmore year and has a job on campus so I know she's busy and is ready to get back to her life...  Kerri will be going to visit Ash in March for Spring Break.  I am thinking I may need to stow away in Kerri's luggage...haha 

I can't wait to post pictures!  My camera broke :( but my Brother-In-Law took pictures and I am waiting for him to send me copies and then I will attach them.

Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas too!!!

So last week was Garret's turn to teach Family Home Evening. However, we found out some disturbing news that day. Dan's job of 21 years will be coming to an end on Christmas Eve. We had no prior warning and were in total shock. So we sat Kerri and Garret down and started to explain to them the changes that were coming to be. Garret then stood up, put his hand on Dan's shoulder and quietly said "HAVE FAITH" and that concluded our FHE... Enough Said!!!
